DNWPH GBD Board of Directors district-wide election underway

Duties & Expectations of a GBD Board Member

The newly-formed Dogpatch & Northwest Potrero Hill Green Benefit District needs Board Members who are willing to take on the rewarding work of starting a new nonprofit organization.  This is not a paid position, but promises the satisfaction associated with improving the neighborhood. The Board is responsible for managing the District's annual assessment income according to the specifications outlined in the GBD Management Plan. The funds are to be used to:

  • Clean, maintain, enhance, and expand Public Realm areas in the Dogpatch and Northwest Potrero Hill neighborhoods.
  • Support community volunteer efforts.
  • Promote sound ecological practices with a locally controlled, sustainable, and transparent funding structure.
  • Promote a high-level of transparency and accountability in how GBD funds are spent.

Board Members are required to attend monthly Board Meetings as well as perform Committee work.  Board Members should look forward to working together along with a part-time paid Executive Director and maintenance staff.
